This is the softest group of fans I have ever seen in any sport.

For 6 years now we go on a 2 game losing streak fans call for the coach to be fired, goalie to be traded, bench this guy, whine about this whine about that. Give me a break. I can't believe how spoiled fans have become here, try going through the 70's-80's when outside of 82 this team was going nowhere fast.
How about the Messier/post Messier debacle?

We lose Aaron freakin Volpatti on waivers and this place explodes like we traded the Sedins for Clarke MacArthur...

Seriously Vancouver get a grip...

So what kind of topics are we allowed to talk about?

PS: Lots of us were here for the darkest days of this franchise and forgive us if we want a cup before we have to rebuild this team again.

I was saying Lu-Urns...

Message boards are also for reasonable discussion, believe it or not.

Could start with rational talk instead of treating losing a dime a dozen role player like selling the farm maybe for a start...

I agree.. totally

I think there are a lot of lonely people on this board though who just want to communicate with others and this is their means. Creating a controversial topic designed to start a heated discussion/debate is the best way to do that. This is sometimes referred to as a troll under extenuating circumstances..

CDC does not even come close to representing the fan base of Vancouver, so we shouldn't be so quick to generalize about all fans. The media doesn't help matters.. but freedom of speech/press is what it is

I agree with he OP. I've done my share of venting, but some of the stuff on here is just goes over the top, lots of it you can't take seriously.

Never said I was, but clearly the sky is falling routine to every tiny thing that goes wrong is clearly not reasonable. Not too hard to figure out...

Then again, if CDC was up in 1994 - it would have been just the same. Just didn't have the same kinda place for kids to gather around and trash talk publicly in front of an audience.

What you need to do is not cherrypick opinions of some posters and generalize the entire group based of a small sample size. Yes, some people are more vocal in some topics then others. For instance did you see my post in the Volpatti thread? No, because I didn't make one, I am pretty indifferent to it. I liked him, but it is what it is.

The more a poster cares about a certain subject, the louder that poster will get and while it may seem that means everyone, you have to notice that there are indeed different opinions or even abstaining and silence to wade into the topic at hand.

So no, the entire fanbase is not freaking out and you are not the bastion of calm, patience and objectivity. You are just another fan and one day you may get heated over a subject and when that day comes, feel free to rant about it on this board provided. Then when someone rolls their eyes at you and says "all Vancouver fans blah blah blah" you may just see where I am coming from here.

And if we didn't complain so much, we wouldn't have the biggest board in the league!

If this rant is about the fans' reaction to Volpatti, why didn't you post in that thread instead of starting a new one. That's a real annoying trait on CDC :bigblush:

It's not really cherry picking when you have 17 pages of Fire AV knee jerk reactions after a loss, again I never said I'm the bastion of calm. This isn't new around here and no I don't mean all Vancouver fans are like this, the sky is falling mentality gets tiresome after a while. If we lose 3-5 in a row with piss poor effort I expect it but two bad games happen we don't need to overreact over every tiny little thing that goes wrong.

This didn't need it's own thread: there is a Volpatti as well as whiny fans threads already in progress.
